Did some early morning gardening keeping the grasses and weeds in check after I cleaned my grills and threw some meats on the Traeger smoker.
It’s amazing all the little grasses that come up weekly. The grass and weeds most under an inch tall mostly but after I was done today that grass and dirt intertwined in the roots was about half a 5 gallon bucket.
Anyway some items like the Thai basil bush the bees love are producing and other plants like my “husky cherry tomatoes” are thick with ready to turn red fruit.
I have gotten several sweet and purple basil sprouts from seeds mixed in the soil from when I turned and mixed the soil with my rototiller. Also getting some squash and cucumber from seed mixed in the soil from rototilling.
I kept one side of the garden for plants that run and have vines like squash, cucumbers and watermelon plus a couple of rows of peppers. The other garden has tomatoes egg plants, Swiss chard and items like that. I have spices like basil, rosemary, sage, tarragon and mint on both sides in various spots. Plus have my raspberry and grape vines dominating the background.
The side with the running vines and plants doesn’t look as developed but when they start growing they will be all over the place.
Here’s the pictures:
I will be adding other items as I get time and moving some of the items once they get to a certain size that came up from seeds mixed to various spots from my turning over the soil from prior years plants. I moved one plant today that had come up to close to a pepper plant that sprouted from a prior years plant.
Can’t wait to start eating from my garden again regularly!
